Restore Windows 10 Store APP via Powershell

If you have lost you Windows10 Store , there is a quick fix that can bring it back.

We will not require admin rights for this fix and is advisable to do it with user permissions as W10 apps mainly work via user context

The first that we will do is search for our package route path manifest of the W10 Store with the following powershell command

We will copy the result on our clipboard.

Get-AppxPackage -name *WindowsStore* | select installlocation

This can change between different computers. Spot the route of my computer is the following:

C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_12004.1001.1.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe

We will add the following now to this route ( Manifest ):

C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_12004.1001.1.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml

The last step will be running the full install command with the route we got and the manifest via powershell:

Add-AppxPackage -register "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\Microsoft.WindowsStore_12004.1001.1.0_x64__8wekyb3d8bbwe\AppxManifest.xml" -DisableDevelopmentMode
